After working for over a decade with many of the finest international fashion labels including Alexander McQueen, Gucci and Hugo Boss, I went on to start my very own mens jacket and coat company selling in major department stores like Harvey Nichols in London and Beams International Gallery in Tokyo. I became disillusioned with certain aspects of the industry and decided to try something entirely new and became a custom trimmer (upholsterer) for one of the UK's finest restorers of classic 1960's Mercedes and Jaguars for many years. I live and work in the seaside village of Charmouth, Dorset with my wife and daughter.
Squidgie is an amazing saddler based near the Hampshire coast. She received her degree from the finest and most prestigious of saddlery schools, Cordwainers in London's East End. Many a graduate have gone on to very big things in the leather goods industry and I am proud to have someone with so much skill and expertise involved in this business.
